JoJo Accessories is run by me, Jo Foster.
I studied Textile Design at Central Saint Martins were my passion for making things really started.
After 10 years of different creative and design positions i decided to turn my hobby of making old union jack flags into bags and cushions into a business which i started selling on a market stall in Spitalfields East London, Not on the high street saw my stall and i started selling on not on the high street in 2010.
I live in a lovely seaside town called Leigh on sea in Essex and work from my attic room cutting and sewing each product to order, with my black spainel Ted as company!
The ethos of the company is to create handmade and good quality textile products, which are unique yet fun.
The signature of JoJo Accessories is that most products are lined or backed with 100% cotton white and blue stripe ticking which complements the colours of many prints and fabrics that i use, It is a practical and durable fabric and i have used it in my sewing for years
The Brand has developed over the years and and my best sellers now include personalised hot water bottles for everybody and a allsortment of purses and wash bags
Each item is handmade by just one person in my workshop using materials sourced from the UK and I do try to find recycled materials as well, like the vintage blue/red/white ribbon I use on the end of the zips.
